From its launch onward, each boat slowly, inexorably moves toward its final voyage. With a good crew and maintenance, it can be many years before its lot is sealed and it’s sold for scrap, sunk for reef building or hauled ashore with indignity…
Many a proud vessel ends up on display, where many can admire its rich history of survival on turbulent waters and safeguarding its crew. Museums tell the tales of these ships and the impact that they had on civilization over the centuries.
Then again, some are discarded without regard for their deep souls…
This image is from a trip to Nova Scotia, where I found this ramshackle boat lying on the shore. This really was a nightmare scenario for this poor vessel, which I tried to reflect with the processing of this image.
Hope you enjoy!
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 1D Mk II using an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens. It was a series of exposures that were combined using Photomatix Pro by HDRsoft.
